Windows 7: What security setup do you have?

09 Jun 2010   #261

Arch Linux 64-bit

Hitman Pro

I will be adding Emsisoft Anti-Malware to the mix.

Edit: Added Emsisoft MalAware. I have been using NPE (Norton Power Eraser) for a while, just haven't mentioned it.

Edit 2: Will only use MalAware very occasionally. Emsisoft Anti-Malware is included in the cloud scanning of Hitman Pro.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

  • Avira AntiVir (free)
  • ZoneAlarm 9.2 (free)
  • WOT (IE8 & Chrome)
  • Malwarebytes
  • Windows Defender
  • RemoveIT Pro (free)
  • UAC off
I use to use PC Tools firewall until a couple of people I know tried to uninstall it. After it unintalled Windows 7 x64 then said their copy was not genuine anymore. Apparently this is an issue with it: LINK

Windows 7 x64

Now I am using Panda Cloud Antivirus Free. Very light and very high detection rates. I will definitely buy the Pro version.

Windows 7 x64 finally!

I heard that Panda is a pretty good anti-virus package, they just don't advertise much so are not so visible or make the top performer on the usual analysis (not that they would be at all biased by the companies that spend millions advertising with them...).

Any opinions / experiences? I have a Panda Internet Protection 2009 that I never installed, maybe I should try it.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)

Microsoft Security Essentials is enough for me, I have an admin account and nothing much really. My own little thing, so I only really have MSE it's simple, and pretty much cleans anything dangerous. Though scan can take a little while.. >.<

But I'm fine!

I haven't removed NIS2011 Beta yet while my parents and I get used to this set-up. Our subscription for NIS2010 expires Mar 23, 2011.

Edit: Reverted to an earlier image. Running with no anti-virus/malware real-time!
